Ride In a 1941 Waco Biplane at the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum Saturday

By Carmelo Turdo
The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum will be hosting a 1941 Waco UPF-7 biplane during regular hours 10am-4pm tomorrow, August 4, at historic Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2 at St. Louis Downtown Airport in Cahokia, IL.  Pilot Kevin Kegin will display the aircraft on the ramp near the museum, and will offer rides in the aircraft for only $125 per medium/large adult or 2 small adults/youth in the front cockpit.  Flying in the Waco is an experience you will not forget, riding the winds in an open cockpit along the St. Louis riverfront!  Don't miss this opportunity!

Here is what you may see during your Waco ride over the St. Louis riverfront:

Special thanks to pilot Kevin Kegin for today's flight and for bringing his beautiful Waco to the museum tomorrow.  More photos from today's flight will be featured in a future post.
